The fabulous Naomi, of Straight into Bed Cakefree and Dried, created Go Ahead Honey, it's Gluten-free, much to the enjoyment of all of her fans. I want to say thanks to Naomi for having me host this February, I'm so excited!
My theme for February is Sweets for your Sweetheart. Valentine's Day is what comes to my mind when I think of February. And although most of us think of our significant other as our "sweetheart," Valentine's Day is for anyone you love. It could be a child, or a grandchild, a neighbor or a friend. Maybe you know someone who would really appreciate you showing them that you care.
I remember one Valentine's Day when I was young. My friend, Paul, came to sit by me at lunch. He opened his bag and began to take out his food. Everything his mom had packed him in his lunch was red. She gave him strawberries I remember, and a clear little bag of red M&M's, that looked as though they had been separated from the other colors by hand. There was also a red bow and a card. Paul must have felt pretty good about that, and I did too, just admiring it.
I don't know who I'm going to give this Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream to yet, but I think they're going to love it. It's chocolate and creamy, and there are chunks of chewy brownie bits in every bite. I know it's cold outside, but I will always remember the very first time I came to Colorado, ten years ago. It was covered in a ton of snow, and I was at my girlfriend's place in Denver. We curled up on her couch with about 3 pints of Ben&Jerry's and dug in! This may have even been one of those flavors!
